The BFI Film Academy is coming to Oxford! If you are 16-19 year olds with a passion for film, and want to be part of our future film industry this maybe just what you are looking for.
Film Oxford has been chosen as one of just 24 centres throughout England to deliver this exciting new Academy training for young people who want to work in film. Working closely with the BFI and their strategic partners, BAFTA, Creative Skillset and Pinewood studios, Film Oxford will deliver a unique programme of high quality training to 18 young people living in Oxfordshire and bordering counties.
The Film Academy will take place over 8 days in February and will include screenings, film production as well as visits to a leading film school and Pinewood Studios.
You’ll get the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and get stuck into production, developing skills in scripting, camera work, sound recording and editing. You’ll be rubbing shoulders with some of the industry’s leading new talent as they inform and engage you about their work, as well as gaining insight from established industry practitioners. In addition there will be cinema screenings to develop an increased understanding of the history, theory and criticism of British and World Cinema.
After completing the training, the participants will be put forward for a nationally recognised Arts Award.
